HER CHOICE, HER FUTURE!
Asylum seekers are often male. However, on average, almost as many women as men migrate to Belgium. Although each individual’s migration journey is unique, gender is a determining factor in the migration process, both in flight, refugee status, and integration and resettlement into a society. Women are exposed to gender-based violence and persecution because of the simple fact of being women, on the one hand, and their precarious situation, on the other. During their migratory journey, they are often victims of human trafficking, mutilation, violence or physical, psychological and sexual abuse.
Her Choice, Her Future! is dedicated to women. This project aims to facilitate the inclusion and integration of refugee women and girls by providing them with specialized support and adapted psycho-social, economic and professional accompaniment. Our objective is to integrate gender, its dimensions and implications in our actions, analyses and missions. In other words, while distinguishing between the needs of minor and adult women, it is essential that we take into account the specific needs of both and give them tools that will lead and guide them towards autonomy, freedom and independence.
